Sending all my loving to you!

I don't normally do 'collections posts' of things I love. Mostly because there are only so many ways to declare love for food processors without people thinking you're whack.  But today I thought I'd give it a red hot go...Let's talk about a few of my favourite things:

First up...

For a 'getting married' gift, my great aunt gave Inspector Climate and I mugs from Anthropologie. The above is the one she gave me and man does this mug make tea taste delicious. It's big enough for my hands to wrap lovingly around it to get all the warmth from the tea and quite pretty, no?

We also like to eat/drink smoothies out of them with a spoon.

Which brings me to my next favourite thing:

Rocket ship mold popsicles  (BPA free of course).  I bought these as a birthday gift for Inspector Climate last year. We love them. We like to make berry smoothies and then freeze the leftovers into popsicles. They make an excellent healthy snack on hot days!  Holy Moses, I adore them - I do wish they were slightly less phallic - but I guess that's just part of the package (I had to) when one buys rocket ship popsicles.

And you didn't think we were going to get out of this without talking about yoga pants did you? Did you? Naive people. So, for Christmas I left my love for Patagonia Rhythm pants behind - they changed the material they make them with and I'm not a fan.  And got some Inner Waves pants instead...behold (and I apologise for the strange picture. The pants are fab, the website is not so much):

Via here
These are incredible yoga pants, they don't ride up in the thigh/buttock area (no one wants wedgies or camel toe during yoga...), they're soft, and most of all they're tight but not too tight so I feel comfortable wandering them around the market after yoga without feeling self conscious about people staring at my non-existent ass. 

I think it goes without saying but none of these items were sponsored (although get in touch soon inner waves - I'll wear your yoga pants any time).

What are you loving?


  1. I want some rocket popsicles!

  2. Your phallic Popsicles look delicious! I can't practice yoga in pants. I sweat too much. Those are super cute though. I'd love a yoga clothing company to sponsor me. Too cheap to spend a lot on pricey gear.

  3. What a genius idea for smoothie leftovers. I'm definitely going to keep that in mind.

  4. Thanks for your comment on my blog :) I've been reading about your experiences getting a visa, and am now following xx

  5. Vegetarians can totally use crockpots. Last week I took refried black beans, regular black beans, veg stock, celery, onion, taco seasoning and cayenne pepper and cooked on low for 10ish hours. Then I stirred in frozen corn right before it was done and made a black bean chili/soup. Cheese and sour cream with tortilla chips and you have heaven in a bowl!! Thanks for your comment. I love them!

  6. the make your own rocket pops! How fun for summer.


  7. I NEED those yoga pants! That color... beautiful!

  8. Did you just talk about camel toe on your blog?
    : )

  9. Oh, these are cool. Love the yoga pants. Oh, so want me some rocket Popsicle! Awesome mug too!

  10. I need some rocket ship popsicles.

  11. I'm refraining my immature self from making a joke about those popsicles! Do they sell those yoga pants in the US? I've never seen them!

  12. Love those popsicle molds, they are so cute! What an amazing and inspiring post! I´ve just discovered your amazing blog and I love it! I´m happy to be your new follower :)

    xx Ivana

    Stop by sometimes :)
    Macarons and Pearls

  13. The rocket ice blocks are awesome. I like the idea of making my own ice blocks (well that's what we call them in Australia).

    Those yoga pants look comfy and I love the mug.

  14. I need some rocket popsicles too! brilliant!

  15. That mug is gorgeous! I love love love Anthropologie.

    And the popsicle mould?? Gotta get me one. Not sure if they exist out here in the Alps though...

    Hope you are feeling better :)

  16. Thanks for stopping by and commenting on my blog.

    Those yoga pants sound awesome, I've been looking for something decent so I think I'll have to check them out.

  17. Ooh, those rocket ship mold popsicles are phenom - my nephew would love those! :)

  18. Love the rocket ships! And I finally broke down and bought yoga pants last night after 6 months of pilates classes were destroying my nice black leggings and making me self conscious to boot!

  19. I appreciate the things you love and Who can NOT love homemade popsicles?!?

    I hope you are recovering well from your surgery.

  20. Those rocket popsicles are amazing!!!
    Have a great weekend. :) xoxo

  21. Oh my gosh, I want one of those popsicles!

  22. oh i love those anthro mugs!! i really wanted one for christmas, but i got so overwhelmed by the letters on them {what letter should i choose? what should it stand for? but wait, i hate all the colors of the mugs with letters i like! but if i get a color i like, what in the world will i do about the LETTER?!}, that i eventually gave up on them. moral of the story: monograms are useless components of life created to induce panic attacks.

  23. Those yoga pants sound super comfortable and they do look great. And yay for Anthro mugs, I would spend all my money at that store!

  24. We got wedding presents which I wasn't expecting because we kept the date secret until the end! It was nice.

    I'm, personally, a fan of Lululemon. But now there is that controversy with them, so I need to find a new brand :/

  25. Ruby - They're so much fun :)

    Poptartyogini - Yes, that is definitely an issue, Inner Waves has great shorts too! Good to know about the crock pot :)

    E - It's SOOO yummy. I think smoothies make even more excellent popsicles than they do smoothies :)

    Lisa - Thank you for following, I intend to become a frequent visitor of your blog too :)

    Preppy Pink Crocodile - They're just delicious :) and so much fun!

    Teacher girl - they're awesome! And pretty reasonably priced considering they're organic cotton!

    Twenty Four at Heart - HAH! I know it kind of surprised me too.

    Ellie - I can't recommend making your own popsicles enough :)

    Jane - YES!

    The Zadge - HAHAHA, yes being mature is always a challenge. Yes! They're an american brand but fairly small.

    Ivana - YAY! Thanks for following! I'll be visiting you shortly :)

    Gracie - hmmm, I thought ice cubes were ice blocks and popscicles were icy poles!

    Nina - They're so yum!

    Crystal - I'm a big lover of Anthro too! They have all kinds of fun designs I'm sure that Some variety exists in the alps!

    Amanda - Please check out inner waves! They're an awesome little company with good morals.

    Erika - Yes! Kids adore them. They come in stars and other fun shapes too.

    Rose - Yes! leggings are a dangerous thing for yogis/pilates people.

    Happy Jen - Thank you! I'm getting stronger all the time. It's impossible to NOT love home made pops.

    The alternative wife - Thanks! They're sooo much fun and so yummy. Win-win

    Krysten - They're so delicious! And become such a cheap healthy snack. An excellent investment.

    Kimbirdy - You can't get them non-monogrammed? My aunt got us our first name initials on ours.

    Vanisha - I could spend all my money in there too - it's a danger!

    Titleless Blog - I like lululemon too - but find they're yoga stuff realllly expensive. Inner waves is great - and organic cotton!

  26. The Popsicles look like a must have in every household lol! The yoga pants a close second ;)

  27. I've seen those mugs before and they are so pretty. ALSO, I don't think there is anyway to escape the phallic aspect of popsicles. It's oblong and goes in your mouth, y'know?

  28. Oh my gosh! I love those popsicle molds! I must try to get those!
